Monarch: Legacy Of Monsters – Trailer Talk
The same week that Japanese film company Toho released the trailer for their next Godzilla film, the American remake series is continuing. After 2021’s ‘Godzilla vs Kong’, the next entry will be an Apple TV+ series.
‘Monarch: Legacy of Monsters’ follows two siblings as they try to uncover what their family’s connection is to the secret organization Monarch.
Following on from the Godzilla trilogy and ‘Kong: Skull Island’, the series looks like it will finally give fans more information on the secret organization, something that I’ve been interested in since 2019’s ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’. But the execution of this could be really interesting as flashbacks are also shown from Bill Randa’s (John Goodman – Kong: Skull Island, 10 Cloverfield Lane) perspective when he explored Skull Island. And, with this being a series, there’s room to actually incorporate flashbacks as well as scenes from modern day to give fans background on the workings of Monarch.
But the world building is the part that intrigues me the most: this is set after ‘Godzilla vs Kong’, so the world is very aware of the existence of monsters and has adapted to it. A small detail, but great example of this is a sign that’s shown expressing that there’s a ‘Godzilla Evacuation Path’. The series has a great opportunity to take its time and show fans how the modern world has truly adapted to these horrific events that seem to occur very often.
‘Monarch: Legacy of Monsters’ is looking like a fantastic and exciting follow-up to ‘Godzilla vs Kong’. The story and world building are really intriguing and the next entry being in the form of a show means that the background and workings of Monarch can truly be revealed.
